About Our Physical Education Teachers


Mrs. Linder

My name is Mrs. Linder. I am currently a Physical Education and Health Teacher at Prairie Elementary for grades K-4. I have also taught ELL and 4th grade at Prairie. The great part about teaching all the grade levels at Prairie is I get to see the students grow and mature from year to year.

I received my AA degree at Worthington Community College (Minnesota West) and my BS degree at Bemidji State University. I have worked for District #518 since 2000. I keep myself busy by attending my children’s events and activities.
